Esmeralda's is a very friendly and welcoming locally owned cafe and it just happens to be one of the hidden gems in Northgate Mall! A diverse selection of tea's, different types of coffee's and juice's here! They have great food at reasonable prices. There is always fresh pastries and fresh fruit to choose from! This place has a surprising big menu for a cafe in a mall. If you haven't been here yet you should really check it out!

If you haven’t try this place, try it today! This place is really good! I tried the Baliadas and Horchata Frappe. Honestly I never thought a place like this would sale good Baliadas but they are petty good. A little pricey but the Tortillas de Harina are Homemade. This place is great!

The homemade cheesecake is divine. Good coffee. Casual and inviting atmosphere with fresh and from scratch breakfast/lunch/dinner options. Their baleadas, a traditional Honduran dish consisting of a flour tortilla folded over with a variety of tasty fillings, are a treat. Their quesadillas are kid-friendly but also tasty tasty enough for the adults.

Best breakfast burrito in Durham and good coffee too. Easy access from the back entrance of the mall. This is a hidden gem of Durham!

What a cool little place! The girl we spoke to is the owner's daughter, and she is super cool. Down to earth type, polite, friendly! And the food is the epitome of warm, comfort food. Filling, freaking delicious and AWESOMELY affordable. So. Good.

The breakfast sandwich options are superb, seriously. I happened to have a piece of the breakfast croissant sandwich shared with me, every since then I have been hooked ! It’s cooked to perfection, a real fried egg, bacon, sausage, peppers, onions and cheese on a light toasted croissant! Ohh myyy. I hate that it’s soo good to be honest. Also, the lady that operates the shop is pretty sweet. Give them a try....!
